“Angela was able to assist my family law client in gaining an in depth understanding of her financial situation when she was overwhelmed by an unexpected divorce. The information Angela provided was presented in an understandable format that was able to help our client in making important life decisions. Her report assisted us in making a strong case for ongoing, compensatory spousal support.
The important of financial planning during a major life change cannot be overstated, especially when the change is a separation or divorce that completely changes the family’s financial objectives. Getting Angela’s insight at the start of our case was beneficial for litigating the family law case and for empowering our client to make the best decisions given her situation. Angela’s assistance in understanding and analyzing finances post-separation is invaluable.”

“I have been a client of BMO Nesbitt Burns since 1998. In the past few months, I felt that my portfolio wasn't showing much activity/growth, however, I wasn't too concerned but felt that it was time to find another investment advisor within the firm.
In 2008 we made the decision to transfer our investment and retirement portfolio to BMO Nesbitt Burns and specifically under the guidance of Angela Galer-Grist. Over the past three years, Angela has provided consistent common sense guidance and direction in managing our portfolio and estate needs. Angela has demonstrated extensive knowledge and expertise in financial planning but has been very effective in communicating complex subject manner in a language we can understand and comprehend. Angela provides regular updates on our portfolio status and provides recommended adjustments aligned with our investment goals. In addition to these regular reviews, Angela is always available to meet with us or answer questions in person or on the phone. The combination of extensive knowledge, consistent availability and the skill to communicate effectively has given us confidence that our savings and investment portfolio is in capable and trusted hands."
